By the way, I guess we could add Glenn Beck to the list of mega-wealthy individuals that stand to benefit if Bush Jrs tax cuts for millionaires and billinaires is extended...  [Good pay for faking tears, eh?]


"In June 2009, estimators at Forbes calculated Beck's earnings over the previous 12 months at $23 million, with 2009–2010 revenues on track to be higher.[69] Although the majority of his revenue results from his radio show and books, his website's 5 million unique visitors per month also provides at least $3 million annually, while his salary at Fox News is estimated at $2 million per year.[69]Beck's online magazine Fusion sells an array of Beck-themed merchandise,[69] while his website offers a web subscription service called "Insider Extreme" where for $75 a year one gets access to behind-the-scenes footage and a fourth hour of his daily radio show.[1] In April 2010, Forbes calculated Beck's earnings for the previous year (March 2009 - March 2010) to be $32 million.[1]" [From "Glenn Beck - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia":]
